On a side non-partisan note, I just want to observe that this march really drove home for me how much the Internet is a game-changer when it comes to news coverage. None of the networks carried this live, obviously, but I was able to keep up on Twitter, follow links to relevant blog posts, watch live shots on YouTube, and, at the end of the day, get email to and from Elias Feghali, who was sitting on a bus somewhere between here and D.C.
It doesn't matter that the mainstream media was only following the health-care vote (and I'm not knocking that; it also was a hugely important thing happening this weekend). But I was able to follow both the health-care stuff AND the march.
I know the Internet isn't the greatest thing since sliced bread, but it's times like this that I feel kind of relieved. It's nice if the media covers stuff, but even if they don't, word can get out. Information can be found. Connections can be made. The story can be told.
